tapeout(1) Output tapefiles to real tape


tapeout sample_rate tapefile [start_block [output_file]]


This program lets you copy a tapefile ( .tap or .tzx ) to real tape via soundcard.

You have to connect the soundcard's line out socket with the tape recorder's mic socket, then start this program.


Sampling rate for the output. The higher this is, the better quality the the result will be. It should be at least 16000.
Name of the tape file to interpret, and output to the soundcard. It should have either .tap or .tzx extension.
Specifies where to start playing the tapefile. Default is 0.
If given, the program writes the sound output into this file instead of the soundcard.


Many parameters are not changeable (like pause between tape blocks).

Not interactive (except for Ctrl-c).
